Never in a million years did I think my “Photos I Wish I Didn’t Photoshop” post would go viral and be seen by hundreds of thousands of people AROUND THE WORLD.
I’m absolutely in awe.
And I’m absolutely humbled too.
The outpouring of support through email and social media has brought me to tears on more than one occasion.
I’ve heard from grandparents, mothers, fathers, young kids, teenagers, and everyone in between, thanking me for shining a light on women’s unattainable beauty standards.
To everyone who has reached out to me:
It’s because of you that I now know my mission in life. I was put on this earth to fight for body love, because every email I received told me I’m not alone in feeling unworthy just because of the way my body looks.
But please know I’m still trying to get through my emails. I promise I will respond to each and every one of you.
To my new followers:
Welcome to Do The Hotpants!!
My hope is that you will come to this site for creative outfits, a laugh or two, and maybe a feminist rant to get your day going.

LOVE YOU DANA!!!
the feeling is SOOOO mutual
….See what letting the “Real You” out makes happen! It’s all good.
Besides, knowing the real you, I never could imagine why you needed to PhotoShop anything ever!!!
<3 <3 <3 <3
It’s so cool that you’ve come clean on this! (Although I think you’ve got some pretty good Photoshop skills ;))
Lisa – AT LEAST BLOG
Thanks Lisa! Yeah I should do it for a living ;)
Isn’t it hilarious that fashion magazines such as Harpers Bazaar, Elle, Grazia and co. write about you? They most certainly photoshop every single picture.
Can i just say this was the most relevant comment ever??? I had such a hard time with the whole thing. But I figured if I can help just a handful of girls feel a bit better about their bodies for a second, I’ve done what I can. But yeah….smh
